Skin Treatments


Dermapen Skin Needling Therapy (or collagen induction therapy) is one of the most advanced skin rejuvenation therapy available today.

As we age the natural production of the skins supporting cells, collagen and elastin naturally diminish which leads to wrinkles, sagging and hollows in the skin. Stimulating the skin to produce more collagen and elastin is called collagen induction.

What conditions does micro-needling treat?

  • Mild to moderate acne scarring
  • Surgical scarring
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Pore size and skin texture
  • Keloid scarring


Is the treatment painful?

Skin needling with the Dermapen is extremely comfortable when used with topical anaesthetic cream. The treatment itself takes approximately 30 minutes for a full face.

How does it work?

The device glides gently along the skin, penetrating the layers of the skin closest to the surface, of a depth of up to 2mm to create numerous tiny needle wounds. The therapy encourages the skin to respond through creation of new collagen and elastin fibres. As the skin responds, it plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of scars, wrinkles and fine lines.


What can I expect from the procedure?

The skin is cleaned and numbing cream may be applied to lessen discomfort. For better results we use a collagen-stimulating product like Hyaluronic Acid.   A small handheld pen like device with a sterile, disposable tip with 12 tiny needles is then used to pierce the skin. Our needling pen’s multi-speed and adjustable needle depth allow needles to pierce the skin’s layer at 90 degrees and increase the absorption of products. After the treatment, soothing after care serum is used to hydrate, heal and protect the skin.


How will I look after treatment?

In my experience, most people will have a mild redness and possibly some swelling. The same way you may feel with a mild sunburn. Effects may last for 24-48 hours and there may be pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising. Within several days to several weeks you will notice a smoother, brighter, and more radiant appearance, however, the full effects of the treatment do not appear until several months later.


What is the down time like?

The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 12 to 48 hours. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend hyaluronic acid after the procedure, and to protect the skin with zinc-based sunblock. The use of mineral makeup may be used after procedure.


What improvements on the skin will I be able to notice?

  • Reduction in pore size
  • Improvement in the quality and texture of the skin
  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves the look of disfiguring scars from surgery, accidents or acne.


How much does the treatment cost?

Single Treatment               $320

3x treatments                     $860 (save $100)

4x treatments                     $1100 (save $180)

6X treatments                     $1500 (save $420)


How many treatments do I need?

Everyone is different and after consultation, you should have some form of indication how many you should have. Skin conditions are different as well as the age of each patient the amount of treatments may vary but here is a guideline:

Rejuvenation:         4-6 treatments – 4 weeks apart

Acne Scarring:       6 treatments – 6 weeks apart

Stretch Marks:        10 treatments – 4-6 weeks apart




What is IPL Skin Rejuvenation?

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light technology. It is an FDA and TGA-approved and patented form of treatment which has been shown to be both safe and effective. You can reduce or, in some instances remove unwanted blemishes like pigmentation, broken capillaries, sun damaged skin, age spots and rosacea (redness). IPL is also known as photo-rejuvenation. Because it is a relatively simple and straightforward procedure, with few concerns in terms of either side effects, recovery time, or the level of invasiveness with the treatment itself, IPL is continuing to become a more widely utilised choice.

Benefits of IPL Skin Rejuvenation

IPL skin rejuvenation offers patients a wide range of benefits, including:

  • IPL is a quick, effective and no downtime for recovery. You see great results without undergoing intensive surgery.
  • IPL works amazingly for removing red splotches, brown spots, and scarring, as well as reducing pore size, eliminating and reducing wrinkles, and improving overall skin texture, smoothness and quality. IPL has been used to treat rosacea, hyperpigmentation, melasma, age and sunspots, broken capillaries, spider veins, stretch marks, and other conditions as well.
  • IPL achieves a more youthful appearance.
  • IPL offers a legitimate and long-lasting solution, as opposed to some procedures which offer only short-term results.


Procedure Details

During an IPL procedure, intense light from a range of wavelengths is focused on the specific parts of your skin that you are treating. The IPL device itself is gently pressed onto the skin, with a smooth, transparent surface emitting the light on the targeted areas.

This light helps to spur on the production of collagen, which will help to fill in lines and wrinkles or shallow scarring, while also reducing redness, discolouration, and spots.

Meanwhile, the targeted tissue that has been damaged is naturally removed by the body. Depending on what is being treated, the exact wavelength range can be adjusted to optimise results.

You will wear an eye mask to protect your eyes and vision during the procedure, and topical gels may be applied on your skin to prevent overheating.

The entire procedure is quick, taking about half an hour to complete, although the exact length will depend on what the practitioner is treating.


What does the procedure cost?

Anywhere from $40 per spot – Full Face Rejuvenation $275

SHR IPL Hair Removal


Did you think WINTER was the only time to begin your hair removal treatment?

If you considering IPL or laser YES. HOWEVER, we have the SHR IPL (super hair removal) which is the latest and newest form of hair removal, you will be safe with this latest method all year long, day after day! So, you need not wait until the middle of winter to begin your treatments, you can begin today!



SHR uses lower energy and more pulses when compared to IPL. SHR utilizes an “In Motion” technique and low-heat settings as explained, the level of safety is unlike any other laser hair removal procedure. 50% of the energy targets hair melanin, while the other 50% targets the stem cells responsible for hair production, thus resulting in reduction of hair growth by 95%!

In a nutshell: Rather exposing the hair follicle to a single high energy pulse which can cause trauma to the skin, SHR gradually heats the skin until the required heat energy is delivered into the hair follicle. This makes SHR the safest hair reduction option for dark skinned patients and most effective option for fair haired patients.



Depending on your skin and hair type our therapists normally recommend that it takes 6-9 SHR treatments before you will see a permanent reduction in the level of hair re-growth. Every individual is different and some need as little as 3 and others up to about 12 sessions before the optimal results are seen. 2- 6 weeks between treatments are recommended depending on the area being treated.

Benefits of SHR hair removal, is that it is a safe, effective method of laser hair removal that is quick and pain free compared to many technologies around the world. A small body part SHR takes 5 to 15 minutes and a larger area can be completed in 20 to 30 minutes.



Active growing hair that has been treated with SHR should not grow back, as once a hair follicle is damaged, it cannot grow hair. Hair follicles that were not in the active growth phase will need to be treated until damaged. Although hormones and change of lifestyle can have an impact on further hair growth and will need initial maintenance or further treatments.



SHR have no “down time” and requires no recovery at all.  You might notice the follicles could be slightly raised and pinkish in colour which will dissipate within a couple of hours. You can have your treatment at lunch time and go back to normal activities immediately.



We are interested in the Anagen Stage. Therefore 25% of hair is removed with each treatment, therefore a few treatments are required until we have a hair free area.

The anagen, or growing phase, during which your hair grows. The catagen, or regression phase, during which your hair follicles shrink and detach from your skin. The telogen, or resting phase, during which new hair begins to grow under the older, detached hairs.


With any ½ leg, Full leg or Brazilian booked in until end of August, you will receive your underarm SHR IPL Hair Removal completely FREE!!

Offer extends to both salons: Book Rose Bay or Byron Bay 

New Year’s RESOLUTIONS: anti-ageing solutions for your skin when you’re in your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond

We’re almost in 2018 and this is the time to consider our New Year’s resolutions to start healthier habits, leave some parts of the past behind and become the best version of ourselves. When you write your list, do you usually think about your skin? Our skin is our most extended organ and it is always exposed to different agents. We have to treat it and protect it properly, as we only have one – once destroyed it is a big task to recover!

It is never too early to start with anti-ageing solutions, every age has its own specifics and requires various treatments. We wrote a little guide on what to do in in order to have a flawless skin in your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond.

Anti-ageing solutions in your 20s: time for prevention

Even if you feel like you’re too young, when you’re in your 20s it’s time for you to start thinking of the changes that happen in your skin in order to prevent damages.

What happens with your skin?

  • Your skin takes around 14-16 days to regenerate itself.
  • You might start seeing fine lines around your eyes or forehead. This is due to how much you use your expression muscles.
  • You might still experience acne breakouts and blemishes, especially around yourperiod. The testosterone production is higher in those days, making your skin oilier.

What you can do at home

Wash your skin twice daily, always include toner and moisturizer in your routine. Preventing wrinkles and pigmentation requires applying a SPF 30 or higher every morning. With acne breakouts, use zinc oxide formulas to make sure your pores are not clogged.

Bodibeauticious recommendation:

Treatment in the salon:

We recommend a Deep Cleanse Facial at least every few months to cleanse your skin.

skin peelWhat to do in your 30s: enhance your collagen production

When you’re in your thirties, it’s time for you to focus on stimulation of your collagen and elastin to keep your skin firm and plump. Since your oestrogen levels start sinking, your collagen production decreases. This is when your skin begins to break down collagen faster than making it.

What happens with your skin?

  • The skin regeneration process takes around 28-32 days.
  • Some wrinkles might show up, especially expression lines on your forehead and around the eyes.
  • You’ll notice how the moisture level of your skin is decreasing and you might even experience dryness around your mouth.

What you can do at home

Get a proper anti-ageing regimen, especially for night time. Try to use products containing retinol. It is a derivative from Vitamin A and it increases collagen production making the skin thicker and smoother. Don’t’ forget good eating habits such as consuming a lot of antioxidants and to exercise. A flawless young skin is a reflection of a healthy body.

Bodibeauticious recommendation:

Treatment in the salon:

Once the salon analyses your skin, we will determine exactly what procedures to take. There are various options from Micro-dermabrasion, Skin Needling or IPL to begin resurfacing damaged skin from your youth. One can start using wrinkle injections, especially on the lines that are still visible when your face is not moving and dermal fillers around the mouth area.

Skincare in your 40s: it’s all about retinoids

This is the decade when gravity starts playing a role too, together with your hormone production. Time to seriously focus on anti-ageing and make the difference!

What happens with your skin?

  • Oestrogen production plummets, causing a loss in firmness, collagen and moisture, making your skin thinner.
  • Free radicals start to visibly damage your complexion, especially if you don’t consume enough anti-oxidants and if you haven’t before.
  • You’ll notice that your wrinkles, capillaries, age spots and blood vessels are more visible and appear at a much quicker rate.

What you can do at home

Your anti-ageing regimen should include: cleanser, moisturizer, serum, eye-cream and daily SPF on your face and neck. Choose products that contain retinol, you’ll never get enough of it! It will help to make your skin firmer, reduce your wrinkles and strengthen your blood vessels.

Exfoliate at least once a week with a gentle exfoliater and then follow with a hydration mask. Your lifestyle has a great impact on your appearance, so eat healthy and reduce sugar consumption, stay hydrated, sleep enough and exercise.

Bodibeauticious recommendation:

Treatment in the salon:
Wrinkle injections and dermal fillers are good, but you can also consider dermabrasion, skin peels and dermal-needling to rejuvenate and boost your collagen induction, creating a more youthful appearance.

Cosmetic proceduresRoaring 50s: time for menopause

Menopause usually happens at the beginning of this decade. Oestrogen sinks dramatically, making place for testosterone as your prevalent hormone.

What happens with your skin?

  • Your facial tissues are losing volume. This is especially visible in between the middle of your cheek to your nose. This is because you’ll have lost one third of your collagen in the first 5 years of menopause.
  • The signs of ageing will appear also on your neck, where you might experience turkey neck.
  • Overall, you’ll notice a loss of firmness in your skin, deeper lines, stretched, open pores and more age spots.

What you can do at home

The way you treat your skin can make the difference. It’s important to have solid products and focus on moisturizing because of the loss of the natural hyaluronic acid production from oestrogen, which will make your skin drier.
Wash daily although try to avoid water that is too hot, also when you shower. It will prevent you from further endangering the moisture levels of your skin.

Use products with hyaluronic acid and, of course, retinol. Add a vitamin C serum and an SPF every morning to make sure you have done everything to stimulate collagen production.

Bodibeauticious recommendation:

Treatments in the salon

Injections, fillers and wrinkle injections to firm your lines and cover dark circles. They can make you look 15 years younger in literally one afternoon! Fillers are also great to increase collagen production. You can also consider IPL and Needling to get rid of those annoying brown ageing spots.


As you can see, every age has the right anti-ageing solution. At BodiBeauticious we use the highest quality standard of treatments as well as in our products. Come in for a free consultation to find what best suits you or check our services in Rose Bay and Byron Bay.



What men want: interesting facts about male grooming

Did you know that the male grooming is the fastest growing segment in the personal care market? 2013 was the first year when men spent more on male specific skincare products than on shaving. And it only increased since. Research say the global market for male toiletries is going to reach 23.9 billion US$ by 2022.

It is now a fact that men want to look their best: 1/3 spend more than thirty minutes a day on beauty practices. They commonly use cleansers and moisturizing lotions for face and body as well as lip balms. Especially the ones in corporate positions consider their appearance to play a role when it comes to their success and longevity in the business. They are also more conscious about protecting their skin from pollution and sun.

So, what do we need to know about the male beauty industry?

Should there be specific products and treatments for male grooming?

Men’s skin is actually quite different from women’s, hence the need for specific products and treatments. It is not only a matter of marketing and packaging:

  • Male skin is 25% thicker but it gradually thins with age, unlike female’s which remains constant until the age of 50.
  • The ageing process starts later but is faster
  • Men have higher testosterone levels, which result in increased collagen production and density. The collagen fibres are also more tight and dense, giving a plumper skin appearance.
  • The outer skin layer in men is thicker, giving a better protection and hydration.
  • Men loose more subcutaneous fat with age. Therefore, their wrinkles are deeper.
  • Male pores are larger and produce more sebum, but in a constant way through the years.
  • The large pore size also causes more shaving-related issues such as ingrown hair.
  • There is more lactic acid in men sweat than women’s, this is why their mantle is more acid.

What are the grooming habits for men?

When it comes to their grooming habits, men seem to like simple and low maintenance regimes. Compared to women, they are more practical in their buying choices and less driven by marketing.

Even if the time men spend on skincare is increasing, they don’t really want to stay too long in the bathroom. As they love simplicity, some of them dream of having just one product doing 4 different jobs.

The basic male beauty routine is cleansing, exfoliating with scrubs and moisturising. However, men are getting more conscious about sun damages and, therefore, buying more protective daily creams.

Guys in their twenties are not concerned about ageing yet. They look for solutions for sensitive skin, shaving irritations, blemishes, blocked pores, environmental stress and sun damages. On the other hand, men in their thirties and beyond think about the signs of their ageing skin. Therefore, they seek for ingredients targeting fine lines, skin regeneration, dryness and protection against pollution. Products specific for some areas such as neck or eyes are not very popular yet, but the trend might change in the future.

Simple but effective is what appeals to them the most. So, something that is easy to apply and the skin can easily absorb. Most of the times, they look for fragrance-free products.

What is a man doing in a Beauty Salon?  The most popular male grooming treatments

Not only skincare at home, the male grooming treatments are increasing in number and popularity. So, what do men do in their salon visits and what do they like? In general, men prefer non-invasive and fast procedures, with the least side effects. Even though there are more businesses specifically targeting only men, the traditional salons are becoming more and more mixed and genderless.

Facial: a man’s facial consists of cleaning out the blackheads and soothing often irritated skin, usually caused by shaving.  A combination of cleansing, exfoliation, steam, masks, and moisturizers will leave their skin smoother than ever.  The smoother their skin, the better and less painful their shave.  A relaxing massage is also given when the mask is on.

Waxing: once a prerogative of body builders and sports people, waxing is becoming more and more common. From back to legs to Brazilian and Hollywood, men want a smoother skin. A consultation is highly recommended for the ones that are new to the procedure. It aims to make the client feel more comfortable and it will also provide useful information for after care advice.

ENE, is what men should be having: wives, partners and girlfriends always insist on them getting Ears, Nose and Eye waxing, as most men grow hair in all the wrong places. The guys might not always be up for it. However, if they come in for a facial, we as therapists recommend it and make sure we administer that procedure as painless as possible.

What happens in that room?

Men, as big and bold as they seem, often become meek and mild in the salon. They are out of their comfort zone as another woman is taking control, which can be scary for some of them. They secretly like to relax and often, within the right environment, they just fall into a deep sleep. However, some are asking a lot of questions, a lot … what you putting on my face?  How often do I need this?  What do you think I should be using?  What can I do with my wrinkles?  How many times did you say I need to wash my face?  But once we actually give them the protocols and the advice on what they should be doing and using, they become among our best clients J

I have a funny story about this. I was working with a client’s husband. We were fighting against constant breakouts on his skin, so I told him to change his pillowcase every night, as bacteria can often get trapped in it… Oh my goodness he was such a good listener! He still does it after 2 years.  His wife is not impressed with her white linen and changing his black pillowcase every day, which is a complete eye sore. But hey we got rid of the acne. If you’re reading this, you know what am I talking about 😉


Hope you enjoyed our little travel into the male grooming world. What treatment would you like your partner to do? Do you have any funny anecdote about his beauty habits? Would love to hear from you!
